Some more wildlife which turned up this afternoon about quarter to four. The cat is the pest from next door, the pedigree Bengal cat, which is so curious it might just come to a sticky end.... I had had a jacket potato for a quick lunch and had already put out the skins, which would have smelled of butter and cheese, ready for part of the badger's supper later on. There was some peel from a pear which I'd had for 'afters', too. I had seen the fox on the patio for a few nights this last week or so but a fox is much more wary that the badger. The slightest movement and it's gone so I hadn't been able to take a photo. It's obligingly turned up in real daylight, how kind of it! I think the badger might be missing his supper as this fox also eats all the peanuts I scatter on the patio! (The blurry portion on the left is because it's my cream sofa's reflection in the patio door.)
I wondered if this is a vixen with cubs somewhere nearby when I saw this photo on the computer screen - and is that mange as well?
I wonder what will turn up next - it'll have to be l-o-t warmer for the grass snake to reappear.
